Orioles and RHP Chris Tillman avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $6.225 million contract.

Chris Tillman improved to 11-11 after holding the Yankees to two runs in 5 1/3 innings Sunday.

Tillman did just enough to finish the season with a 4.99 ERA, which is actually kind of impressive, considering that he was over 5.00 in five of the six months. We don't expect him to bounce all of the way back to his 2014 numbers next year.

Chris Tillman gave up two runs in 7 1/3 innings, taking a no-decision in Monday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Tillman allowed a solo home run to Edwin Encarnacion in the second inning, but held the Jays scoreless from there until the eighth inning. He left with a runner on second base and one out, but reliever Darren O'Day allowed his inherited runner to score. Overall, Tillman gave up five hits and a walk while striking out three. The right-hander has a disappointing 5.05 ERA with a 1.37 WHIP and a 115/60 K/BB ratio over 167 2/3 innings. He'll close out his season with a home start against the Yankees.

Chris Tillman earned his 10th win on Wednesday versus the Nationals, yielding three runs over six innings.

Tillman issued three walks and allowed six hits while striking out five in the effort. The Nats pushed across two runs in the fifth to take a short-lived 3-2 lead. The right-hander has had a tough year, carrying a 5.16 ERA with a 1.39 WHIP, and a 112/59 K/BB ratio over 160 1/3 innings. Tillman will host the Blue Jays in his next start.

Chris Tillman was hit hard in a no-decision against the Royals on Saturday, allowing four runs on four hits over his 5 1/3 innings.

Tillman walked two and struck out three on the afternoon. After looking like he had righted the ship in July, Tillman has continued his struggles in August and September and now sports a troublesome 5.21 ERA on the season. He'll look for better results on Thursday against the Rays in Tampa Bay.

Chris Tillman was shelled for six earned runs in three innings Sunday as the Orioles fell to the Blue Jays.

Toronto's lethal offense victimized him for eight hits, including three home runs. Tillman has been roughed up now in three straight starts and probably shouldn't be considered as a fantasy streaming option over the final three weeks of the regular season. He now has a 5.15 ERA.

Chris Tillman was hit around in a loss to the Rays, serving up seven runs over 4 2/3 innings as the Orioles fell 11-2 on Tuesday.

Tillman had thrown three scoreless innings, but the Rays burst out for four runs in the fourth, and another four in the fifth -- three of which were charged to the right-hander. He gave up eight hits and two walks while striking out five. Tillman had been pitching better since the end of June, but still owns a disappointing 4.87 ERA with a 1.36 WHIP and a 97/50 K/BB ratio over 140 1/3 innings. He'll take the mound in New York to face the Yankees in his next outing.

Chris Tillman struggled in Thursday's loss to the Royals, surrendering four runs on nine hits over his six frames.

Tillman walked one while striking out one on the afternoon. After three scoreless innings to begin the ballgame, the Royals scratched out runs in each of the next three frames, including a solo homer by Pablo Orlando. While he has been much better in the second half of the season, Tillman will still carry a troublesome 4.58 ERA and 1.33 WHIP into Tuesday's matchup against the Rays.

Chris Tillman pitched well in Saturday's loss to the Twins, allowing three runs on four hits over 6 2/3 innings.

Tillman struck out six, walked two and allowed a singular run in the sixth, plus two more in the seventh. He holds a 4.51 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 91/47 K/BB ratio across 136 2/3 innings this season, but has allowed more than three runs just twice in his last 10 starts. Tillman's next scheduled outing is a road toughie against the Royals.

Chris Tillman held the Athletics to two runs in seven innings, earning the win on Monday.

Tillman rebounded nicely after he was hit hard by the Mariners in his previous start. The right-hander gave up a pair of solo home runs to account for the damage. He gave up three hits overall, walked three, and struck out three. Over his last eight starts, Tillman has a 2.13 ERA. On the season, his ERA stands at 4.54 with a 1.34 WHIP and an 85/45 K/BB ratio over 130 innings. He'll face the Twins at home in his next start.

Chris Tillman was hammered for five runs in 2 1/3 innings in a no-decision as the Orioles fell in 10 innings to the Mariners.

Tillman hadn't started since July 29 due to a sprained right ankle. The Mariners took him for eight hits, including two home runs hit by Nelson Cruz and Mark Trumbo. He walked none and struck out two before departing. The right-hander has a mediocre 4.66 ERA with a 1.37 WHIP and an 82/42 K/BB ratio over 116 innings. Tillman will start at home versus the Athletics next.

Chris Tillman (ankle) will start for the Orioles on Monday against the Mariners.

Manager Buck Showalter announced Friday that Tillman would return to the rotation on either Sunday or Monday, and it looks as if they'll play it cautiously and give him an extra day. Miguel Gonzalez will start on Sunday.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said that Tillman will rejoin the rotation on either Sunday or Monday, but wouldn't commit to which day. The right-hander has been outstanding over his last six starts, registering a 1.09 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 30/6 K/BB ratio over 41 1/3 innings.

Chris Tillman (ankle) will throw again Friday with an eye on returning to the mound on Sunday.

Tillman told reporters his bullpen session Wednesday went well. The right-hander missed his scheduled start Monday due to a sprained right ankle, but it seems as though the ailment is minor. Assuming the Friday session goes as planned, Tillman should be able to make his next scheduled start.
